• Wife batterer sentenced

    Monterey County District Attorney Dean D. Flippo announced that on September 19, 2014, Daniel Chartraw, age 41, entered a guilty plea and was sentenced for the charge of corporal injury to a spouse and personal infliction of great bodily injury.

    On May 30, 2011, Chartraw was charged for battering his wife in the car after a Little League baseball game in Carmel Valley. The victim sustained a broken nose. Passengers in the car at the time were Chartraw’s wife, their four children and a friend of one of the children. Chartraw was also charged with violation of a restraining order which resulted from a previous domestic violence conviction in El Dorado County in 2009.

    Chartraw bailed out of Monterey County Jail but failed to appear in court on September 1, 2011. He was subsequently apprehended by the U.S. Marshall’s Office and held in federal custody for wire fraud. While serving a 57 month sentence at Terminal Island, in southern California, Chartraw was transferred to Monterey County for the pending domestic violence charges.

    On Friday, Judge Mark Hood sentenced Chartraw to seven years in the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation to run concurrent to his federal sentence. His release from custody is estimated to be in 2018.
